Whisky Advocate Award: Islay Single Malt of the Year

                                                              Bruichladdich 10 year old, 46%, $57

....... I wanted a bottling that said, “This is what we are, everything else is a variation on this theme.”.....The 10 year old does just that. It is uncluttered by finishing and marketing; it is Bruichladdich, pure, clean, simple, identifiable. It says, “One chapter has finished, now the work starts;” it says, like Alice’s transforming liquid, “DRINK ME!” and that, let us not forget, is what whisky is all about. —Dave Broom
